're watching public affairs programming on c-span, created by america's cable-tv companies offered as a public service. in a few moment, president obama outlined his plans for nasa. after that, senator joe lieberman on a preliminary report. and later, a news conference with leaders of the tea party express from this year's congressional election. >> c-span, public affairs content available on television, radio, an online. the also connect with us on twitter, facebook, and youtube. >> president obama talked about the plan to cut back on planned missions to the moon, relying more on private companies to transport astronauts. he was at the kennedy space center and was introduced by senator bill nelson. this is 40 minutes. >> the man i am about to introduce is a patriot, a leader, and a visionary. he is also someone who knows the importance of america being a leader in science and technology through space exploration. he has been there, done that. he is a marine general, an aviator, a test pilot, flying more than 100 missions in vietnam. i have known him the better part of a quarter of a century.
and the people of the united states of america not president obama. the issues that i would like to work on are the issues that are before us now that i mentioned earlier. i would like to pass the fair tax. i think it will work. i would like health-care reform that would work. without forcing them to buy health care under the threat of a fine or going to jail. another thing i think that is important that is not being addressed is the board is security between the united states and mexico and our border security all around the country. it is a little disconcerting to mention. there were 17,000 murders in northern mexico and the last three years. that is scary. 650 kidnappings in arizona. something has to be some. >> i think our most immediate needs are to work on creating jobs in the united states and in arkansas. i would wear to eliminate the tax provision that action against american companies an incentive to move jobs overseas. replace those with tax credits so that we can create jobs here at home and said the more bailout for wall street. but put those funds into loans for arkansas sm
into america. they saw a great opportunity through mexico. the overland route took them by monterey. here we are with all breaking loose and everybody is scared. you have a lot of people who are totally innocent and looking for safe haven and they are worried about others because we are arming the other side. the mexican army and police are dying every day to keep the drugs from coming and the bad guys come over here and get somebody to go buy some assault weapons because we did not institute the assault weapons ban. . . the real reason this anti- immigrant sentiment -- look at the numbers -- white male factory workers without a college degree got killed in the last decade. manson -- manon -- men in terms of wages killed even worse than women did. the economic downturn was basically on white male high- school graduates and women high school graphics with a couple of years of college that just got hit in the economy. but they will get more jobs with the economy grow. their taxes were be lower. the changes we will have to make will be slightly less draconian if you have more people contributin
afghanistan. maybe because america is less affected by these problems and russia and europe are suffering more. this is the drugs that go to our countries. and we should achieve a greater progress on that. we have similar approaches on the meast settlement. we need to create necessary conditions to -- for the creation of an independent palestinian state. so far, we are facing a lot of difficulties. until then, we cannot expect a durable and sustainable peace in the middle east. so far, the united states is taking vigorous efforts to recover the constructive process , including through proximity talks. we totally support this idea and this year, i have met with almost all of the middle east leaders. i supported indirect faux. we hosted the meeting in moscow and i hope eventually it will lead to direct negotiations. any stop in the development always brings about lagging behind. that is why our country started modernizing its economy and started the technological innovation introduction. so far, frankly, speaking, we haven't done that much. and frankly speaking, here, we would like to count on t
take into consideration the growing income disparities in america? .. congressman spratt. [inaudible] >> instead of social security, but human wrote one of the best little polygraphs readable by almost anybody on the subject some time ago. how immediate is the problem? how urgent is that problem and what are some of the options available to cave-in person-years to come? >> well, looked at compared to some of the other contributors to growing deficits, social security may not look like a princess that, but as we look over the next half-century, as we showed, when we think about social security policy, it's clear that some significant changes are going to have to be made. those changes can be quite modest if we begin doing them now. social security saucily program, which has not been changed in significant ways over there. since night and 35 notwithstanding the fact that the demographics of the country have changed, the patterns of marriage and work have changed and income levels have changed. and i think they're about to other steps that could be taken to modernize the program and mak
-- is often described the experience of living in america as a black man to experience something he attends to deep tissue muscle bruising. not the kind of thing you might be able to see but that kind of thing you feel, and make that makes itself present in the way that you might feel arthritis. what is there and it services and lets you know that it is there from time to time or go to the extent that he has that how does that inform? >> chris edley who is the dean of law school of berg weight and his non-obama for quite a while, and it is chris edley who once said race ain't rocket science. is much harder than rocket science. one of his friends at harvard law school practically from the first day of harvard law school was a woman named cassandra butts and cassandra butts worked with obama. she describes obama as a translator because of his unique -- the way you have an interpreter when you go to a foreign country and that person becomes your lens, and because obama grew up in a multiplicity of of worlds in a way that most of us do not, he is able to do that in a political sense. he can go
to understand is, here again, the politicians are behind this. if you check out every working person in america, the vast majority are opposed to making 30 million -- and it is not 11 million, those are lies. 30 million illegal citizens. just like here in washington yesterday, somebody said that he wants to pass a resolution in a council where our city will not do business with arizona. who the hell is he to speak for washingtonians? this is the kind of thing that we have to be mindful of i am glad that you are taking a stance down there. mr. obama needs to be working on jobs instead of immigration. that is what he needs to be working on. before this is over with, we might all have to be working in strawberry fields and chicken factories because it is going to be a long time before jobs come back to america. even before the great depression, gas did not come back until the war. these jobs that people say americans do not want, and i do not believe that. i never see anyone jumping up and down in the streets for legalizing. host: he talked about washington, d.c. council actions. i have heard abou
america, small businesses, consumers, public safety and cyber security. that is why it is so important that everything that we do has a solid legal foundation. the communications act, i believe, requires the fcc to adopt policies to protect consumers in concerts networks whether they are traditional networks are newer data networks. they assume that the fcc is making sure consumers are protected, competition is promoted, innovation and investment are promoted and it will be completely consistent with the communications act for us to continue to do what the fcc on a bipartisan basis has been doing for quite some time. >> thank you, mr. chairman. >> senator nelson. >> thank you, chairman. i would ask that my statement be entered in the record as an opening statement. >> will i have a chance to read it first before i rule on that? >> that is up to you. >> so ordered. >> thank you, mr. chair. >> mr. genachowski, your plan has recommendations to provide the ultra high-speed internet to some select military installations. and, of course, we have quite a bit of military in this state of flor
and controversial issues of law about which there is very reasonable disagreement in america. in fact, one of the great things to think about this country and its legal tradition is that there is room for the disagreement. as much as i like my own views, i confess to you that i would be a little afraid if i was the only voice speaking and that everything went my way. that is not the kind of certainty that i have about my own views. i hope my writing reflects the more thoughtful writings reflect that discipline and restraint. >> madam chairman, thank you. if there is an opportunity for us to visit privately i would welcome that. i suspect there may be questions for the record falling out. goes without saying that you can add or elaborate on your answers. >> i would like to close this off with a few words. questions? [laughter] >> i would note that sutton is here and he was a skilled attonrey -- attorney and that went on for 12 hours. we have had some long hearings. this certainly did not exceed the normal. with regards to your comments about constitutional fidelity that "it may be valid whe
for america in the broader middle east. the litany of challenges is well known -- two wars, the specter of nuclear proliferation, the ever-present threat of terrorism, and the scourge of radical extremism. a deficit of democracy, governance, and human rights. the on the film promise of recognition, reconciliation, and peace between arabs and israelis. the list goes on. but we are not without tools for change. one of the tools is the impressive human capital that is brought to address these problems. our special guest today is a prime example of this. in or out of uniform, general james jones has devoted a lifetime of service to our nation. as a marine, he saw combat in vietnam and was a commander in northern iraq and bosnia. he rose through the ranks to serve as commandant of the marine corps and supreme allied commander, europe, commander of the u.s. european command. immediately after his retirement from active duty, he decided to take on an easy job. he was appointed by secretary of state connolly's a ridoleeza rik with palestinian and israeli officials to further the police process
, which has guided much of america's approach is long past. i have a views on these matters. i will not share them with you today. i will only say the following. hope is very important. it can never be abandoned. not if you have children, and even if you do not. some things need to be seriously tested. i think some questions need to be looked at and answered. can a u.s. president substitutes his own sense of leadership perhaps for the absence of strong leadership that exist in the region? is a conflict-ending agreement between israelis and palestinians which deals with border security, refugees work? are the current israeli and palestinian leaders willing and able to pay the price for that agreement? there is a piece this morning in the l.a. times that raises the question that this administration may be less interested in changing the behavior of netanyahu in mortgages and in changing him. the question -- rather than in a changing him. can they get this right? that is an important question. there has never been an administration that has not done serious peacemaking and also en
other solid cancer in america there would be cause for jubilation. so why is there so much controversy about psa? that controversy stems from my second , and that is a term that has been discussed here, autopsy prostate cancer, also called nonlethal prostate cancer earlier. the problem is that the incidence of prostate cancer is approximately the age of the man in other words, 20% of 20-year-olds already have prostate cancer in their prostate and 80% of 80-year-olds already have prostate cancer. prostate via seas will find about half of these autopsy cancers. because psa has been mentioned here today can be elevated for many reasons, many and may undergo prostate biopsy and have a non-toxic type of prostate cancer found. this cancer poses no threat to their life expectancy. the "new england journal of medicine" published back-to-back papers in their march 26, 2009 issue that is reignited this controversy about early detection of prostate cancer, which has been increased by the acs guideline change issued yesterday. the american study shows no apparent benefit from psa early detection a
america's goal -- america was pretty isolated in its goal of trying to stop iran from getting a nuclear weapon. we absolutely need to move we absolutely need to move quickly because iran is moving quickly. but there can be no doubt that the result of the events of the past 15 months have changed the dynamic fundamentally where the international community now recognizes the threat of iran's nuclear weapons proposes, and it is iran that's isolated not america. that is a direct result of the fundamental change of power. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. mr. berman: i now am pleased to yield one minute to the great advocate of this legislation, and achieving this goal, the majority leader. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. hoyer: i thank my friend of some 45 years, the chairman of the committee, for yielding. and i want to, before i start my remarks, say that i agree with you. with respect to his observations regarding the obama administration's efforts that are bearing positive fruit with respect to our allies around the world
from that and then the other one included in the material in america there are about 94,000 cases every year with 18,000 def death from mersa. do these sound right? is it fair to conclude that over 100,000 americans die each year due to antibiotic resistance? >> large numbers i think the estimate that you gave was 90,000 which is an estimate that has been used before. as i indicated in my opening statement has been progress where we've seen a decrease of about 50% of serious infections in hospitals to participate in the national health care safety net work. >> how has the data collected for you to compile these numbers and estimates? >> we have two major methods. the one that is more widespread is the health care safety net work that builds on more than a decade of experience working with hospitals and infection control practitioners, standardizing the definitions and encouraging the reporting and now we have 28 states which mandate for her and 21 of them use the nh esen infrastructure to report and about half of all hospitals in the united states currently are on board including many h
have mortgages modified will be in the default. it is unfair and yet another chapter in america but bail-out nation co-authored by the president and vice -- speaker pelosi it takes $50 billion from taxpayers are borrows the money from the chinese to build up the bank's have made bad loans and two bail-out many who bought more home than they can afford and speculator used the home as the atm machine 94% owned a home our right they are current on the mortgage and being asked to bail-out the other 6%. is a policy that says to the citizens to work hard and live within their means and save for a rainy day you are a sucr. when you struggle to pay your own mortgage you should not be forced to pay your neighbors as well. the program is unfair to taxpayers according to the gao and the cbo they say the t.a.r.p $50 billion program includes 100% of the tax payer investment although i know that nine of the majority memo under this hearing of the subchapter who will absorber the losses curiously the word taxpayer is never mentioned. a program hurts the economy and fails to recognize the only
. agitating and media dominating as america's civil rights and black power movements were -- and those movements helped shelve the idea of what might race as opposed to several -- most of the country's white people might have doubted that the of people had much to do with them. they might have thought that they were individuals who succeeded by themselves and that race had always meant black people who had not. in fact, by the 1960's the whole races of europe discourse had fallen completely out of fashion and the races of europe discourse, the part i read you really fast. books such as william ripley's races of europe, published in 1899 and important for a quarter of the century. books such as william ripley's races of europe once essential reading on race were now remained as useless. and if you were jewish, calling choose a race would send you a straight into the anti-semitic call on. reminders that jews and italians had been labeled as racist a generation earlier might have prompted a report that race was used word loosely in the past. this is true. but every use of race has always
's co-founder of america's voice, give us your take. guest: a very important debate on how to eliminate illegal immigration. we don't think a patchwork of radical laws of at the state level should do it. we think congress should work with the president to pass comprehensive immigration reform, secures the border, cracks down on illegal hiring and make sure people are here legally. the arizona law, i am afraid, is abruptly written it literally declared open season on 30% of the state which is hispanic. they say it you are suspect, the police have to ask your papers. who is suspect and who is illegal and not? we know when there is a disturbance at a soccer field, who will be asked for papers, most likely hispanic americans. many are here legally. so i think what arizona has done is institutionalize racial discrimination and racial profiling in a way contrary to basic american values of fairness, rather than pressing congress and the administration to step up and pass immigration reform that end illegal immigration. host: protesters turned out sunday at the arizona capitol assailing the me

america, traveled there. we were raised with that feeling of affection. he was the honorary consul general for honduras in michigan in the 1950's. he wanted to find a country that would make him consul, so he found honduras. he stamped 5 visas a year. but he felt so deeply about the importance of those countries, fully meeting the needs of their constituents. that is what this is all about. so in a word, i think we need to proceed. we need to address the outstanding issues. i hope we can do that. >> one of the frequent arguments made in favor of ratifying this free trade agreements is the need to support strategic allies. how much weight should foreign- policy decisions be given in determining whether to ratify a free-trade agreement? >> the answer is, some. but they are trade agreements. that is the answer. i mean -- look, we know with korea, for example, the other issues. they are important issues. all i suggest is that they did not totally overwhelm what is the basic purpose of a free trade agreement. i will finish with this. the rhetoric in this town, of this administration or people l
that bank of america, citi, and all the auto companies have gotten less money than fannie and freddie. it seems that some people in this country are under the impression that housing is our right, and it is not. the pursuit of happiness is a ride. the subprime issue has not yet been addressed by this congress. everyone knows is what caused the collapse. guest: he makes some very important points. the first is, we have a congressional oversight panel for tarp. patrick, that is not the only program out there. the money is being pumped into fannie and freddie. remember that the fed is putting a lot of guarantees back into this economy, has opened the window, is basically lending for free to these very large financial institutions. they can then turn around, and if they want to make even small investments, it is a license to print money. tarp is only a subset. but patrick, your other point is really the key one. we were in a crisis. tarp and the other programs were about let's patch through. congress is out there a year and a half after the crisis still arguing about regulatory reform. un
in america keiser communities together. it creates jobs and boost the economy reduces the prices of goods being shipped and it helps commuters around the country get to work. that is why i'm so glad this administration has expressed a level of interest in rail transportation we haven't seen in a long time. they understand the important role roe roots play in our transportation system. the subcommittee has seen too many budget request from previous administrations that would have guaranteed the bankruptcy of amtrak which would have been devastating to commanders in communities across the country. i know families in my home state of washington deeply value or amtrak service cascade line, has set a new record for ridership is here and i personally heard from a lot of people who depend on it. i know communities around the country value their rail service as well. that is why i'm so glad to issue the request for a grant or amtrak which supports a railroad although it does not meet all the needs identified by amtrak itself. in addition the administration is requesting $1 billion for grants to s
standard. >> are think tanks important to our system of governance in america? >> i frankly don't understand what the think tank is and is supposed to be. it's often what you have is -- speaking in general here, they'll serve interest of one sort or another. whether ideological or material. but you have to present what they do in terms of science. and that's, you know, some of them, i think, do very valuable work. in my own case i felt like -- there was a certain cognitive style that was demanded in this environment. and this style demanded that i project an image of rationality. but not indulge too much in actual reasoning because it could kind of lead off in the wrong direction. so it was sort of the -- it was not -- it was not at all like genuine academic inquiry. and in that sense was quite disillusioning. whereas, fixing motorcycles is genuinely rational. often frustrating but never irrational. >> what's a stickastic art. >> it's a term of randomness. it's what aristotle describes as medicine. the doctor fixes bodies he did not make himself. like a builder who's building a
states. this is where we were born. we can out of the bank of america card and we've been at it the longest here and have the largest product suite. however call our growth places where we are growing the fastest tends to be places like asia pacific, latin america. so when you look at something like australia where the regulators took in my view an extremely ill-conceived course. thus far they've refused to back down and you look at the empirical data. with the reserve bank of australia thought was that by artificially suppressing interchange it would somehow benefit consumers and they were also hearing from the very few because in australia the merchant population is fairly concentrated. merchants who said what we would like you to artificially lower our costs. they did artificially lower the cost of the retailers. so the retailers and the austral the rpf was for digital currency and retailers elsewhere in the world. but not surprisingly those retailers didn't lower their retail crisis. they didn't provide extra coupons. they didn't provide a trip peter or anything of the
about that and he also made comments about that he considers america a great partner and yes they want to run their own country but they know they are not capable of doing it right now so they want our help, they need our help and then they want to take over the country when they are capable of doing it. >> [inaudible] a lot of the world regards the election of the president as less than legitimate understandably so. people in his own country regard him as an american and those factors are weighing on him and he feels the need to assert his independence to show that he's not one which instances like the other day people killed that he be quick to say that's wrong we can't face these sort of things. those are waiting on him as well. >> the president said he would like to start bringing troops home next summer. did you develop any information or, with an impression or realistic that is we to be and how long the united states will need to be there. >> he will continue the surge in iraq to begin about a year-and-a-half ago. within a year and a half, we knew. the mission was accomplished bu
of different constituencies, corporate america, wall street and a public purpose. what was striking to me is in this list of companies, which i will not make you listen to, but they include aig, countrywide, wachovia, citigroup and wells fargo. there is not one company that is a mission-driven company. could you explain why you did not compare your compensation to someone like the director of the homeless coalition? if you have a public purpose -- within that be balanced? -- would it they cannot be balanced -- would they not be balanced? >> my experience in the company was that for the people that we hired or those that we lost, most of them tended to go to companies like the ones you mentioned. to the extent companies went to homeless coalition or other organizations, because they had retired and taken on a job there, or they were going to do voluntary service, so while relevant, it was not a competitive factor in compensation. >> but what you are talking about is comparability and motivation. to the extent that you have an opportunity to put yourself in the public service mission, i sat
with a powerful story could tell about how he or she feels in america and the but types of opportunities they are given. we had a few people that we were considering such as one of our custodians in our school who was from iraq. but her religion wouldn't let her be on camera so being in america we optus we respect her decision because she had the freedom to make that choice. but dima agreed to give interviews and we asked about her life iraq to see if she was the right candidate for the interview and once we heard her experience we knew that dima was able to tell how her real-life experience. >> what impact did her life experience of a document? >> it was unbelievable someone around my age had gone through those kind of the spirit i could never imagine myself in her situation. it was sad to hear about the violence that occurs in iraq and how it affects everybody there. >> what did you learn from her and speaking with her? >> i've always heard people say we should be grateful for what we have in this country. the growing technology and advancements sometimes you forget how fortunate we ar
'll paraphrase, barack obama has lowered the ambitious of america. space is not the final frontier. earth is. that's part of the article. under the "florida today" article that appeared april 16. it says obama doesn't get it. space is last frontier. president obama pulled the plug on our space program here in thursday. although he masked it with some vague long-term suggestions. the late president john k. kennedy must have turned over. he turn -- launched the moon landing program, because he understood that any nation that wants to remain number one on earth must also be number one in space. a couple of questions. it's my understanding, mr. administrator, that there's been a lot of internal administration on how to circumvent that includes nasa's ability to terminate or alter the constellation program. given the important of this issue, we need to understand the legality of the decisions nasa is making, relating to the program of records. especially in view of legislation. would you provide to this committee, the appropriations committee within the next week a letter and a decision documents

the government for the first time she get involved in regulating. right now all of the tv stations in america and all the radio stations got their licenses from the public through the agency of the federal government. the government decides what kind of wireless spectrum is auctioned off. the government decides how much of the satellite spectrum should be set aside for educational programs. the government decides how much of cable should be set aside for public access. the government decides how many radio stations a single company can own, how many towns can have crossownership between newspapers and radio stations and on and on and on. i am not defending any of these policies in particular. i'm just saying, the current reality is that government is involved in the media worlds and all sorts of ways so the goal should be to make sure it this is done in a wise way. there tends to be a little bit of these conversations and it gets a little bit of a misleading idea because the newspapers are the least regulated part of a media ecosystem. broadcasts really is a different thing, so one of the thi
of growth, betting on america's successes and not failure. to understand how the change in investment banks helped bring on the financial crisis, we need to understand first how wall street turned bad mortgage loans into economy-wrecking financial issuances. the story begins with mortgage lenders. washington mutual loaned money to home buyers and then sought to move those loans off its own books. the activities fondant ever more complex market in mortgage- backed security -- that activity spawned an ever more complex market in mortgage-backed security. then things turned upside down. the fees were so large bases to be a means to keep capital flowing to housing markets. mortgages began to be produced for wall street instead of main street. they generated large bonuses for themselves. demand for security prompted lenders to make more riskier mortgage loans making and packaging loans became so profitable but credit standards plummeted and mortgage lenders began making risky loans for people with little chance of making the payments on those loans and mortgages. wall street designed increasingl
